college town in america by people who ranked us. so when i was elected mayor i got the best spot in the city in front of city hall which is in the heart of our downtown. what are we going to do with this? i got to park benches we were not using anymore in the tree was being cut down. we hollowed out the tree and sliced it into chunks and put flowers in it and created the smallest park in the city. instead of reserve for mayor we have assigned it said reserve for mayor and friends. automatically small things change instantly the way people thought about how much space we use for cars. change was possible on a small budget and it changed the way people protested my decision. they take right away to the parking spot. i didn't anticipate that one. they say the sign says friends right there. that kind of creativity -- in the last thing is, the first is energy in the second is creativity and the last thing as moral authority. i mean in an unambiguous sense of what is right and what is wrong and fair. it is not true of everybody but for a lot of us that same six euro bill as a dinosaur.
politics happens the morning after the morning after. so, i think -- hearing talking about the election. i don't know how the election is going to come up and make no predictions but i do ask myself if romney gets smashed i don't think the political problem is we have a center left problem and we have a far right party that is a structural problem. the republican party has gone nuts in my view. they've been at war -- there's been a simultaneous -- they've been simultaneously at war with physics at the same time. on the deficit and biological l2 mac, some of them for sure. so the question to me is what happens the morning after this election if romney loses. he wasn't far right enough. i wonder if the morning after the morning after. people would say we have gone too far to the right and we need a different republican party which i think the country desperately needs because it needs to be center-left and it's the only way we agree to get big compromises on these issues. >> can i add the role of history suggests the clinton and ronald reagan the second term as the productive term, the big a
net, whoever has been advantaged by the november elections is going to say, let's wait until spring when i geyser in the sea, so the incentives are all wrong. it says let's do it next spring. the third thing is certain that lame-duck there holding a leadership objection. you will see people say vote for me, but to have a big compromise. it is a terrible environment for the deal that needs to get done. acknowledge the reality, but let's not cause a reception country in recession. they'll get the 2013 intact. >> or may get your reaction. as long as the discussion about tax reform is an ongoing argument about the bush tax cut -- >> i'm so sick of bush tax cuts i can hardly stand it. >> that's exactly the point. the point is his honesty of extended, and as arnold said in the public discussion is the bush tax cut. so as long as you extend them, can you get out of that conversely, does that change the framing of this there were no longer talking about bush tax cuts come or second that the tax code? at the tax code is a working melissa joan c., rather than forget the tax code. >> at 100% a
won't say yeah, we are right even in the best political climate after an election everyone is trying to be nice they can't make progress at the policy is so toxic they are not going to do with the problem. still downgrade. as we have to move past 2013 no matter what. you don't need causing the recession a threat to force us to move. in fact it is irresponsible to have the recession so we should get past the fiscal cliff, extend the ceiling and get to the fundamentals in this grand bargain that will for ever get rid of the fiscal cliff and have a tax code and get rid of the sequestered because we know what the plan will be and that is the best way to go. >> so, the way we got here to the fiscal cliff is a bunch of the cans kept getting kicked down the road and happened to land right in front of us now at the end of december. if you look at cbo office of the fiscal plan if you notice the scary part is the pile of cans that happen to be in front of us right now. there's a good part of the cliff though and that is the part that stretches on throughout the rest of the ten year budget wind
willingly lose an election if i could solve these problems. it is that serious. tim geithner, the treasury secretary, in the book is quoted thousands of words telling the president, you have got to do something about this problem. we have to fix it. you literally, it's not that we're going to close down the government, we will close down the american economy and, in turn, the global economy. if they do not solve the issue of this runaway spending, get some way to stop borrowing in excess, he tells the president of the united states if we default on this, on our obligations and our ious, we will trigger a depression worse than the 1930s. anybody here remember the 19 1930s depression? you probably don't. i don't. i was not born, but i've read about it. it was a calamity for the world. tim geithner said to the president what, if we default on this, if we do not solve this problem, we will have an economic catastrophe that will make the 2008 financial crisis a footnote in the history books. anyone remember the 2008 financial crisis? that's coming not from some columnist or journalist, that is
followed very carefully the election here in the united states, getting to be interesting. last week it became more interesting, what we do follow you. we do love the american people and the american values. sometimes too much. for example, in the day of independence in israel, a big celebration in may. you'll find people putting up the is reflected in the american flag i don't like. i put on my car only the israeli flag. but by people do? because they do it, the value of the democracy agenda can people. but my main point in the book, israel is not america. even though we love america, we are not america. we cannot make mistakes because if you make a mistake, you pay a price. which are able to correct it. if israel makes a mistake, we cannot correct it. we saw it in the past. my main point in my book that it shall make decisions according to the interest of israel, period, we do not have to think or to try to satisfy anyone, even if it means telling our allies or to the american president or the e.u. or to the u.n., we do not agree with you. and i will give you two examples. we are a
